Went on a Sunday around 5pm. Sat at a long table with other people already there. No one came to take our order. We politely caught the attention of a waiter and told him we'd like to order. He said 'when I get to you' and walked away. The couple on our right said ' that'll cost you an hour'... More

The beer was warm, the food was cold and I feel that I wasted my money and time. Some of you may like it. Not me. Very disappointing visit.

Was there on October 7th for a rehearearsal dinner. It was my first visit there and it was great! The food was the best barbecue smokehouse I've been to in awhile! Loved the selections offered. Would highly recommend this place!

I had never even heard of Defiant Brewery until one of my boyfriend's friends decided to have his birthday there one Sunday night (the night that the Giants lost embarrassingly to the Packers). I don't know if they have any brewery tours there, which is what I would normally be interested in, but I spoke to one of the employees... More

I went here with my boyfriend hoping for excellent BBQ and beer. The Beer was good! Just odd that they don't sell flights of beer..... The BBQ was a different story. We ordered a sampler and the only decent BBQ was the chicken and pulled pork. It was very expensive as well. The ribs were gross! Tons of fat you... More

If you are really into breweries it makes sense to give this place a try but thats about all it has going for it. The food is average at best. I wont be going back.

In a place that offers so many different beers and has so much space it is a shame that customer service is so far down on their priority list. Start with the fact that the kitchen is closed on Mondays. Why? I don't know. They did have cheese and Jerky for 5 dollars each but take a look at the... More

First time there. Great beer, good food, huge portions. Next time I think I'll go for the small plates. Love the atmosphere, you are in the brewery. Nice service. Will go back.
